Charitable contributions from supporters like you help Bon Secours Community Hospital continue to invest in the health of our community.

Your donations have made it possible for us to complete a range of innovative projects to better serve your healthcare needs – and it will help us bring ongoing advances in care to you and your family. Thank you for your support!

Recent advances in care for our neighbors in the tri-state area include purchasing new radiology technology, including upgraded mammography equipment as well as new equipment for podiatric surgery. And as we continue building our new Emergency Department, your support allows us to enhance the environment of care with well-appointed furnishings and patient-friendly surroundings in that department.

Upcoming projects include completion of the medical village. The medical village will be a one-stop-shop for our community’s outpatient health needs, providing preventative and primary care and chronic disease management. As part of that initiative, we will build a wellness center, which will expand hospital-based healthy living programs for our community and will provide educational and consulting space for our partner organizations.

Based on the rise of COVID-19 cases in our area, in consultation with WMCHealth clinical and administrative leadership, we have made the decision to postpone our 2021 major in-person events this fall until 2022.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding as we continue to focus on the health and safety of our patients, our workforce and our community.

If you have registered for or sponsored a fall event, we are pleased to present you with one of three options: 1) you may donate your ticket/registration/sponsorship fee to WMCHealth to support our programs and services; 2) you may defer your ticket/registration/sponsorship reservation for the same 2022 event, or; 3) you may request a refund.  Please reach out to Arlette Porpiglia at for assistance.
